A tale of two streaks

The Columbus Crew will be missing at least seven players due to injury on Saturday night, giving the New England Revolution an even better chance to continue their momentum while at Gillette Stadium.

After having a bye weekend last weekend, the Revs get back to action on Saturday night in their second straight match at home. They're coming off an impressive 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire on June 2 at Gillette Stadium, and enter Saturday's match against the Crew with a 4-1-1 record at home.

Going against New England would be Columbus' victorious past in Foxborough, where the Revolution haven't defeated the Crew since 2006.

If the Revs are going to break that losing skid at home to the Crew, they'll have to do it without the availability of Ryan Guy (calf), Tim Murray (knee) and Zak Boggs (ankle), who have all been ruled out.

Clyde Simms (ankle) and Sainey Nyassi (hamstring) are questionable, along with Michael Roach (adductor).

SALT LAKE CITY -- Bobby Shuttleworth made two critical saves and the New England Revolution tied Real Salt Lake 0-0 on Saturday night.

Shuttleworth deflected a point-blank, one-timer by Kyle Beckerman in the 14th minute, and poked away Yura Movsisyan's breakaway shot with his leg in the 71st. It was Shuttleworth's fourth shutout this season.

Real Salt Lake (8-6-6) had a handful of chances, but came up empty each time. Joao Plata's shot, off a back-heel pass from Juan Manuel Martinez, in the fifth minute sailed high; Martinez's chipped over Shuttleworth, but missed wide left in the 32nd; and Beckerman pulled a shot from the top off the box wide left in the 45th.

Kei Kamara had a goal for New England (5-7-8) nullified in the 50th. He put away a cross from Kelyn Rowe but, seconds earlier, Kamara's foot clipped the heel of, and tripped, Aaron Maund, negating the goal.

Salt Lake is winless in its last five.
